This is the first time I've seen sexual preference being called offensive and that's because it's manufactured outrage.
@matrix preference doesn't just mean "choice" it means what you prefer, eg. I like dudes, not women. That's a "preference."
@matrix wheee, manufacturing outrage!
@matrix "sexual preference" doesn't offend me, it just feels like a really boomer-y way of getting around saying "gay"
Mainly gaming/nerd instance for people who value free speech. Everyone is welcome.
